Setting custom standard UPX parameters?

Recommended Posts

Morthawt

When you compile your exe with UPX enabled you see this in the lower window:

>Running:(3.7.0.0):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\aut2exe\upx.exe" --best --compress-icons=0 -qq "C:\Users\username\Desktop\filename.exe"

What do I have to edit or what do I need to do to change those parameters that UPX is using? I would like to totally customize how UPX runs instead of having to manually compile without UPX and then manually go out of my way to do the compression each time with customized settings.

Any way I can just alter the detault "--best --compress-icons=0 -qq" to something I choose?

It comes from AutoIt3Wrapper. If you want to run upx at the same time as your script is being compiled, but with different parameters, you can try turning off using UPX in the wrapper commands, and then use the RunAfter command to have it run UPX with your own parameters. Check out the Compile options in Scite (CTRL-F7) and look at the Run Before/After tab.

or simply use the directive for it:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx= ;(Y/N) Compress output program. Default=Y
#AutoIt3Wrapper_UPX_Parameters= ;Override the default setting for UPX.

I never knew there was a UPX parameter wrapper command, guess I need to polish up on that. :)

      I get the "Unable to add resources" error related to AppData\Local\AutoIt v3\Aut2Exe when compiling with a large FileInstall of a 1.5GB file.  Is there a size limit I need to be aware of?  I've also disabled or removed Trend from three different machines and had the same results.  I've had issues like this in the past but have compiled after the Aut2Exe folder was excluded in AV.  That doesn't seem to be the problem this time around.  If I comment out the FileInstall the script compiles successfully.

      This baby can do almost any language! I found Gleany on this site and set it up on a fresh win10 install. all i would need to do to make it build an exe of the search files app we discovered is the .NET Target Framework download to build 100 % but the exe works and generates! You also need to add the path the the version of csc.exe that you want to run. MSBuild is part of .NET and can read your .csproj file.
      YOU can develop .NET OR C/C++ on this baby!
      Super lightweight (fit for crappy laptops), and you can use any dev compilers you wish, Ming, MS, etc, whatever.
      To use the build, you need to open the csproj file, else, to check your syntax it can compile individual files as well. The warning are because I do not have the .NET 4.6 Targeting Pack installed... LOL, and I could get rid of the Core warning, yes, I did not want to build a .NET Core.dll I wanted a live x64 exe! Told you MSBUILD could handle .CSPROJ, .VBPROJ, and all others Microsoft. Don't let Visual Code or Visual Studio slow you down, although, this works with Visual Code as well but there is only debugging in CORE.DLL projects

      Hi All,
      I'm using UseTraySetIcon("shell32.dll", xx) to set my tray icon to a specific icon while running, is there a way I can specify this icon when I compile my script into an exe so my exe icon is the same?
      Thanks!

      Hello Guys, 
      Is there a way to have Auto it Exe messages/line number when you hover over the tray icon just at it shows when you run Au3.?
      For an example, if I the script has paused due to WinWait or Sleep I could hover over the icon and it shows the line where it's at. Is there a way to achieve the same with the compiled exe? 
      Many thanks for the help!

      Hello there,
       
      When I compile script and use it out of the map where 
      the source code is. So just moving main.exe to
      other map, then source code is.
      It breaks with error:
      Line10010
      Error: Subscript used on non-accessible variable

      So I wonder what kind of file do I need to 
      include with .exe file? Or should I do something else?

      Because people that are using needs only .exe file
      just start it and use it, with out source code.
